With summer comes nostalgia for childhood beach activities, such as constructing sand castles or using sand dollars to imagine future 401(k) contributions. Recapture your carefree youth with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of swimwear from Essential Swimwear online.
Essential Swimwear purveys bathing suits for women of every body type, allowing for comfortable, confident waterside frolicking in custom tops, tankinis, bottoms, and swim skirts. A modest white twist front top ($34.99) flatters curves, including the Archimedean spiral, with a ruched surface, and front-lined navy hipster bottoms ($15.19) hug upper thighs with a lower-cut leg. Tank-topped offerings include the chocolate stripe tanktini top ($27.99), which sports a bold retro design. For hyper-kinetic days of parasailing, dock demolition, or ultimate napping, a pair of red metallic board shorts ($24.99) keeps clients covered. Essential Swimwear charges a flat shipping rate ($4) on all orders, which can be expected in 4–7 days with standard shipping. Expedited and overnight shipping are also available.
Frustrated with the ill-fitting choices at department stores and the time-consuming work of online shopping, Brittney Hanks decided to take swimsuits into her own hands. Seeing the tasteful results of her sewing, friends and family cajoled her into crafting hundreds of suits that fit and flatter the female form. Brittney's suits were so popular that she was eventually forced to outsource the work and focus on designing suits that fit every body type. She specializes in tankinis and one-piece suits of armor; her nylon-spandex creations contain waist-defining ruching, fashionable high-waisted and boy-short bottoms, and a variety of skirts that show off assets without baring too much skin.
